About The Film
Oscar nominee James Caan, Rosanna Arquette, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Efrat Dor star in this family drama about a Jewish American cardiologist who upends his life to become a pig farmer in the Holy Land. Despite his attempts to leave his former life behind, his ex-wife discovers she is terminally ill and decides to revisit their love story, which brings his estranged and eccentric family back into his life, including his son David (Rhys Meyers), a successful gay playwright, and his daughter Annabelle, a perpetual student at 30. Adapted by director Amanda Sthers from her critically acclaimed novel Les Terres Saintes, HOLY LANDS is a universal story of love, loss, and tolerance, told with incredible humor and heart.
